Hello,

When creating Digital Painting with Photoshop do you normally use the mouse to draw as a pencil?

I am checking this tutorial:

Thanks for advice.

I'd recommend an art tablet for sure. Wacom is the standard (and the one I like) but there are other brands. If you really want to do digital painting, it's almost required. Using a mouse,--to me, anyway--feels like painting with a brick.

Here's a book worth owning:

https://books.google.com/books/about/Digital_Painting_in_Photoshop.html?id=...

It covers the topic exhaustively. Look for a used copy if you can find one. They can be had inexpensively on various used book sites, and *Bay.

Is the art tablet compatible with Windows 10 OS ?

Since I do not use Mac.

Art is only my hobby.

Also what's the difference between Medium Size Art Board and Small Size Art Board?

I am a beginner - which one do I need?

What picture size could those art board produce?

A quick glance at the Wacom site says it's Windows compatible.

The size of the tablet has no bearing on the size of the art. It's purely what feels better to you. I use a Large but I have a wide drawing stroke and a dual-monitor setup. A Medium, to me, feels too small and cramped.

If you're just beginning and this is just a hobby, you may not want to start throwing a lot of money into it right away. Start with a mouse, see if you even like digital painting. If you do, then maybe look for a used Bamboo or Draw tablet you can pick up cheap to try out. Upgrade later if you need.

Cek this out: https://therevisionist.org/reviews/huion-h420-usb-pen-tablet-review/

I wonder if that tablet can create a good digital painting like in :
https://www.udemy.com/digital-painting-in-photoshop-create-amazing-concept-...

Since the review only see a simple picture that uses big stoke. Can you create a good digital painting like in the udemy.com link above with that tablet?

I only consider it since it sells for cheap.

Never used one so I can't speak to how well it would work. With enough skill, any pressure-sensitive tablet that works well enough can generate good results. The tablet is just a tool.

I would still recommend you start slow. Use the mouse first to see if this is a hobby you want to invest in. If it is, then do some research on tablets, try one in a store, read some reviews. You don't have to immediately buy a bunch of software and hardware, especially if you just want to see if you like doing it.
